Why is it important?
Canada day is important to me because once again it is traditional to celebrate it in my home. Every year my father takes me and my younger siblings to Chinguacousy park. They have an amusement park set up every year. When I think about Canada day I have memories of me laughing, winning prizes, and having fun. It is a day were my family comes together to have fun, light fireworks, and make great memories.
